Drugs to prevent blood clotting

Anticoagulation

Clinics provide anti-clotting drugs 

What is anticoagulation?

The type of drugs that work to prevent blood clotting are called anticoagulants. These medicines can help with serious health problems. However, they also carry some possible side effects. To learn more, search our health library for "anticoagulation" or "blood thinner." 

Legacy offers special clinics where pharmacists do blood tests and adjust doses for adults and children who take these meds. We work with your doctor or provider to give you the best anticoagulant treatment, while cutting down on the risk for side effects.

  • Medication adjustment

  • Education
  • Help bridging blood-clotting therapy with surgery or other procedures
